The awards acknowledge significant but mostly unrecognized accomplishments of women in Nigeria, in categories such as business, arts and entertainment.
The event will be hosted in partnership with Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ), as part of their 16th annual conference.
Successful nominees will be selected by 10 industry experts, influencers and an independent auditor. Nominations for award recipients will be accepted until Saturday, October 1st.
Mo Abudu, founder and CEO of EbonyLife TV, is looking forward to this year’s ceremony. “Recognizing women who have excelled empowers other women to work together and accomplish great things. The Sisterhood Awards is a way of thanking them for their contributions
to society. Any woman who has accomplished important and meaningful things should be nominated,” she said.
Aishah Ahmad, chairperson, WIMBIZ Executive Council, is also excited to be part of another Sisterhood Awards. “At WIMBIZ, our focus continues to be on female empowerment and on encouraging women to thrive in spite of obstacles on their path. With these awards, we honour women who have made a mark in their respective sectors, women who are positive role models for the younger generation – we remind them that their efforts do not go unnoticed,” she said.
